    Hi everyone, I have a problem with btqueue-0.0.18 and python-2.4_1 on FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p8. I have a direct internet connection (not behind a nat or anything) and my policy.conf file is seen below this post.
    I usually have 10-20 torrents going and however overall speeds seems about 10-50% of what they are with other torrent programs! it peaks at about 600kb/s total, but usually its about 100kb/s even on torrents with over 1000 seeds and under 10 leechers.
    It goes extremly slow on torrents which are 2(?) 1(?), I guess meaning 2 seeds 1 peers. then it goes like 0-5kb/s... what could be the problem here?

    • I recommend you to upgrade to BTQueue 0.1.0 433 immediately.

      I did it today, there is no change. Its almost like being "yello" on other bt clients, I get really slow speeds and few connected seeders/peers compared to other bt apps like transmission, rtorrent, bittornado...

      whats wrong??

       
      • I think the problem might be your settings didn't match network configuration or your net admin shape the bandwidth according to BitTorrent protocol.

        Please give me more information about your network and settings. For example, IP address, router, and etc.

      I have a normal ipv4 network to an LAN network (no ppoe or something) with a dns server and so on. I am the administrator and I have never had problems with any clients at any ports before. Probably python bt clients using the same libraries as btqueue. And now I have the latest version. No router- direct internet

       
      • Could you give me the torrent file? Perhaps the problem is the tracker.

      please its not the torrenttracker thats the problem. Its torrentbytes.net they have been going 100% for years. And I get 1mbit+ downspeed with other clients...

      I have the same issue - everything seems OK with the other bittorrent clients.

      I am using the MIPS version of Linkstation, which identifies itself as:
      Linux NAS1 2.4.20_mipsel_linkstation mips unknown

      Python version is: Python 2.3.5

      My router is Linksys WRT54G with dd-wrt firmware.

      The firewall port is reported open by uTorrent checker I use to verify my desktop Torrent client.
      netstat -n gives most of the connections to the above port to be in FIN_WAIT1 state.

      Scraping doesn't help.

      Please advise.
